Dear Coral-listers!

Does anybody know the reproductive mode of the Flower Coral Eusmilia 
fastigiata? For far I haven't found any clear information in literature if 
this species belongs to the brooder/broadcaster (hermaphroditic/gonochoric). 
Do you have any references?

Thanks a lot for any advice!
